As kids we had chores to do. It was a festive feel. And we willingly did what was told. We were not allowed in the kitchen while mother was busy getting Christmas goodies ready but when the dough was ready she would give each of us some to play with.
We created little animals and the easiest one was the mouse and the tortoise. She offered to fry them for us. I remember mother asking us if we had washed our hands with soap and water before creating those little goodies.
Those were the days.
Any childhood Christmas memories to share?
